“His books added something to his existence — a sort of atmosphere.  No, it was more than that.  They were a barrier of sorts.  They were like a concrete foundation on a house; they kept the structure of his life up out of the dirt.  They kept the termites out of the sill and kept the whole place from shaking to bits when the earth quaked.”

–James P. Blaylock, The Last Coin
